  1. Spot on. Last time I played "competitive golf" was 30 years ago. Granted some money games here and there but nothing serious. I joined our local mens association (lots of scrambles, best ball etc) then I joined our travel team and just found that I was putting TOO much pressure on myself to play well and NOT make mistakes. The travel team was 3 matches in a foursome. There were 2 individual matches and 1 team match. I just didnt enjoy myself. Add in my teammate that is VERY good but wasnt really a teammate in a good sense. I agree with the statement that you have to probably give it a good year or 2 to get used to it, but I just found that it was more of a chore than it was a pleasure. Granted, I met some great guys and played some courses that I probably wont play again, but was the juice worth the squeeze? I dont think so (for me at least)
  2. Jah, that would be great! I can wait. I am probably going to look at them in person (well the RTX zipcore) to make a decision on them. Thanks for the responses guys!
  3. Man, you guys are making this decision pretty easy. Does anyone have a side by side pic of vokeys and tour rack showing the club at address? The topline is the deal maker/breaker for me.
  4. Interesting to hear that the tour rack mid can be played as stock with nothing being done to it. What about heel relief?
  5. Currently playing Vokey 54* M grind and a 58* D grind but have a little cash to spend (dont tell my wife this) and was thinking about the Cleveland Tour Rack in Mid bounce for both with the heel and toe relief. Can anyone compare these? Playability? Looks (especially the topline) etc. Thanks in advance.
  6. gap wedge is a srixon 585, 54 and 58 are vokey sm7

  8. Not gonna lie, the D off a tight lie is stupid easy. I had thought i was in the bunker so I went over with my 58D and realized it was a super tight lie. Figured whats the worse that could happen, skull it, hit my partner (who I was pissed at anyway), opened it a touch and got it close. I am toying with getting a 54d as well
  9. Strong possibility of this. Right now my swing is complete shite so that very well could be it.
  10. naj no not fitted. Just had the head lying around and wanted to give it a shot. It's only been a couple of rounds so it may just be some getting used to.
  11. naj959 that makes TOTAL sense. Thats what I mean. Dont get me wrong, I'm not always flushing it and I can definitely tell when I dont, but when I do catch it flush, there isnt much going on when i do that
  12. 1st let me state I am in a horrendous funk with my ball striking and know when I mishit a shot. But I have question. I have a Srixon U85 4 iron that had a steelfiber cw 95 in it and it always felt horrible (no matter where I hit it) I switched to a Tour AD DI 85 and hit this much better but still feel that the "feel" isnt there as it would be in a hybrid or a 5 iron. My hybrid has a Fuji Tour SPec Blue hybrid and my 5 iron is Modus 125s. I was talking with a buddy and he said he kind of had the same experience with his fli hi So is it just me or do utility clubs lack the feel of other clubs due to their design?
  13. looking down: driver, 4 wood, putter (have to do this b/c my spider l neck gets all dinged up) right is hybrid, 4i, 5i, 6i, left side 7-pw, bottom gap, 54, 58
  14. That workmanship is horrid. I was expecting a few minor dents (mostly on the hosel). To expect the shop to reimburse you for the clubs is not realistic. I am sure that the shop will refund your $$ for the work they wont give you new clubs unless they legit cracked a hosel or face. Sorry.
  15. I'll switch when I have that "not so fresh feeling" i thought of switching from my scotty to the spider then forgot.
  16. Different: Scotty Del Mar California and Spider Tour Diamond L neck
  17. I read the reviews on it and while I was super interested in it, there is no way it would fit my swing. Went with the tour ad in 85g. I'm sure it'll be on bst within the month I appreciate your response!
  18. Definitely want a higher ball flight. I want to be able to play it off the fairway too.
  19. JoeFrigo, thanks for the reply. Yes I am looking at the Utility. I also thought of getting a tour spec hybrid and putting that in there but then I have to sand it down and whatnot
  20. Currently I have a Srixon u85 23* with a steefiber 95 in it and I hate it (no feel, not lively at all). Since I cant sell it here, facebook etc I thought of putting a Tour AD in it. I have read that the steelfiber plays stronger that indicated (maybe thats my problem) and that it is low to mid flight. Will I see a difference with the Tour AD (feel, ball flight, etc)? Thanks in advance
  21. I bought a g400 3 wood and reshafted with a tour blue, but keep going to back to my rogue 4 wood. Just more confidence with the 4 wood off the deck
  22. One of the public tracks around here actually comes out to the 18th green (its far from the club house, close to the parking lot) and they will start to wipe down the clubs. Mine are usually clean as I wipe them down after every shot BUT I will kick them a couple bucks. These are usually young kids and try to do what I can for the kids hustling to make a buck.
  23. Sorry brother...after the way I played Sunday it should be 0
